Touch Gold Racing was founded in 2014 by Mike Kaye. Mike is a former odds compiler with a strong background in both form study and paddock analysis. He set out with a desire to use those skills to become a successful racehorse owner, and has now put together a small team of hard working, like minded individuals with a great passion for the industry that they work in. With an acute focus on attention to detail, Touch Gold Racing aims to ensure horses are in the right races and ridden the right way, therefore achieving the best possible result each time. While Touch Gold Racing aims to make the experience of racehorse ownership as fun and fulfilling as possible for everyone involved, each horse is treated as a financial investment, and we look to make significant positive returns whenever possible.
We have had significant success in a very short period of time from only a small pool of horses, most particularly with Fanciful Angel, a multiple winner for us, including at the Dubai Carnival, and last seen in Touch Gold Racing colours finishing second in the Arlington Million. He was subsequently sold to continue racing in the US.
Raven’s Corner was also a multiple winner for us, and he made the leap to Carnival grade last season breaking the 7f track record when winning a handicap by 7 lengths. He also competed in the Godolphin Mile as Touch Gold’s first World Cup night runner. His progression continued in the 2018/19 season when landing the $200k Group 3 Dubawi Stakes in impressive fashion, to give Touch Gold Racing their first Group race success.
Our current UAE record is solid, with over a 15% win strike-rate, 37% of runners at least placing and around 60% ‘In the money’ finishes. We will continually strive to improve these statistics and better.
There are now 13 horses under Touch Gold Racing management in both the UAE and the UK, with 10 currently in-training in Dubai. While we are looking to build this number over the next few years, we will place an emphasis on quality over quantity. We are most excited about what the future holds for Touch Gold Racing, both in Dubai, the UK and Internationally.
Details of all our horses and the services that we offer can be found on the site, but if you have any specific questions or would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
